AFRSV-Discs2




The Army was the original source of the V-Disc records, with their first  being issued in October of 1943.The
Army’s V-Disc project provided a monthly 'care' package of music
specially recorded for troops overseas. Soldiers fighting a far-flung
war welcomed these musical snapshots of life back home.
